   On May 15th, SGH club members had the International Day event in here at Matsuyama Higashi High School. Inviting 4 guests, 2 from Malawi, 2 from India, students present the Japanese tea ceremony, listened to the presentations of guests, and introduced the school buildings. One student had a chance to wear sari, the traditional cloth of Indian woman. Short time but superior experience it became.
   Mr. Elvis, from India, advised to the students “It is important that young generation like you all to learn, understand, and tell to the next generation the great culture such as Sado, and its Wabi-sabi sense”.

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 12:31

   Four 1st grade students attended at the study abroad fair at Ehime University. This fair is done by the foreign students studying in Ehime University and Japanese students who went overseas for study to show each experience by poster presentation.
Since one student is planning to study in France from this summer, she was asking many questions to French girl, and also a student who came back from France.
   Other students were looking at the interested posters like Germany and Australia, and hearing a lot from them. Looking at students talking happily with students from many countries, China, Korea, Taiwan, Philippine, Nepal, Rumania, France, etc. I realized the globalization wind.

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 14:28

   School trip is one of our big event done on Second grade. Students will separate in to 4 groups which destination differs (This year was Tokyo, Kurobe, Hokkaido, and Los Angeles). I will show you what Los Angeles school trip was like.

Departure May 9th
Los Angeles trip members are now in Haneda International Airport, waiting for the on board to Los Angeles. Thanks to Mr. Hyodo, Mr. Chikazawa and parents who came to Matusyama Airport to see us off!


Day 1 May 9th
We are all safe and fine in hear at Los Angeles. Our first dinner is hamburger! A real one!


Day 2 May 10th
Today, all students woke up in good condition and visited UCLA, Hollywood Chinese center, and the California Science Center where Space shuttle Endeavor is placed at.
UCLA was a place full of nature, squirrel running on the trees and birds singing. Few of the students had time with Ms. Jojo, who is the student of UCLA, walked around and played games together. The Library was a sight to see, so huge with 9 million books inside.
In the evening, are going to have dinner with Mr. Shimmura, a Deputy Consul General in Consulate-General of Japan in LA, Mr. Otani, a president of Southern California Ehime Kenjinkai, and other guests which would be a great chance to hear a lot from them.


Day2 May 10th
Some members who chose the UCLA studying course joined the class of UCLA. The first class was Japanese class, so it became a communicating class with the UCLA students. First half was done in Japanese, and our students played teacher’s role! Rest of the time was done in English, which students seemed enjoying and challenging using English. The energetic attitude of UCLA students and the enjoyable communication seemed to be a good motivation for students.
Next lecture was about “introduction to biological anthropology” done all in English, and it was very hard to listen since it was very fast and full of unknown vocabularies.
This was a great experience for students, thank you all to the UCLA teachers.


Day2 May 10th
In the dinner time, we had a chance to hear from Mr. Shimmura, a Deputy Consul General in Consulate-General of Japan in LA, Mr. Komoda, alumnus, Mr. John Busby, and Mr. Miyata, alumnus. Each person is a global worker, so their stories were very helpful for future of the students. Thank you to the speakers and who attended at the dinner party.


Day3 May 11th
Teachers are also entering into the Disneyland along with the students. Ms. Miyoshi couldn’t wait to wear the UCLA parker, which she bought it yesterday.

Day4 May 12th
Los Angeles trip members visited Tanaka farm on the fourth day of the trip. We enjoyed a fresh and yummy barbeque lunch with strawberry. Mr. Tanaka who is the third generation Japanese immigrant, he always thinks of Japan, for example he has donated to Japan for the recovery of agriculture when the earthquake attacked in 2011. All the vegetables lining in the farm looked so shiny, I guess it’s because Mr. Tanaka cropped them very neatly.
We are going to the Universal Studio Hollywood from now, and after that we get ready to go back to Japan.


Departure May 13th
We are soon flying off from the Los Angeles Airport.

Back home May 14th
Los Angeles trip members are all safely returned to Matsuyama Airport. We learned that there are many smiley faces and meaningful messages in Los Angeles. We appreciate warm welcome of the Japanese community which helped our trip. And also thank you to all who helped the trip as well as the parents.

What it is to experience a different culture

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 13:33

   On May 2nd, students of the SG course in 2nd grade had a class titled “What it is to experience a different culture ~to think of yourself as a foreigner”. This class was done by Mr. Kazuhiro Murakami, a teacher in Center for International Education, settled in Ehime University’s Institute for International Relations.
   Mr. Murakami told that to experience a different culture is a “fresh experience” and “new stimulation” in both good and bad meaning. It gives you many knowledge and feeling, as well as tiredness and stress before you realizes them. So it is important to take a rest as soon as possible. It is very important to look around carefully when you act in foreign countries reminding “it’s not worth risking one’s life”.
   Students were able to learn how to maintain own health and to have a meaningful, safe activity when in abroad.

City Fieldwork of First grade

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 09:48

   On April 28th, all of 361 students of the First grade went for a city fieldwork as one of the curriculum of the Global Meikyo program. They visited “The birthplace of Akiyama Brothers” and “Saka-no-Ue-no-Kumo Museum”.
   At “The birthplace of Akiyama Brothers”, students listened to a neat explanation by the staff, about Akiyama Brothers who studied in old Matsuyama Higashi High School. In “Saka-no-Ue-no-Kumo Museum”, students looked carefully at the each display which made some students luck of time.
   This was the first fieldwork, which became a good training for the coming fieldwork, the company fieldwork and overseas fieldwork. I think students made a good step toward the global world by recognizing the identity of Matsuyama Higashi.
